Question

Among recent college graduates who had at least one student loan during college, we took a Simple Random Sample of size 18. The average monthly student loan payment for those in the sample was $363.07; the (sample) standard deviation was $49.05.

Use the sample data to find a 99% confidence interval for the average monthly student loan payment among all recent college graduates who had at least one student loan during college.Round all answers to the nearest cent (two decimal places).The margin of error for this confidence interval is: $

The 99% confidence interval is:

$ < μ < $

Answer #1

sample mean, xbar = 363.07

sample standard deviation, s = 49.05

sample size, n = 18

degrees of freedom, df = n - 1 = 17

Given CI level is 99%, hence α = 1 - 0.99 = 0.01

α/2 = 0.01/2 = 0.005, tc = t(α/2, df) = 2.898

Margin of error,

ME = tc * s/sqrt(n)

ME = 2.898 * 49.05/sqrt(18)

ME = 33.50

CI = (xbar - tc * s/sqrt(n) , xbar + tc * s/sqrt(n))

CI = (363.07 - 2.898 * 49.05/sqrt(18) , 363.07 + 2.898 *
49.05/sqrt(18))

CI = (329.57 , 396.57)

$329.57 < mu < $396.57

A large retail store wants to estimate the average amount of
time (μμ) its customers wait in line during checkout. In a simple
random sample of 46 customers, the average wait time was 231.3
seconds. The wait times in the sample had a standard deviation of
34.29 seconds.In each question below, give answers to at least
three decimal places.

The average student loan debt for 2016 college graduates who
borrowed to get through school was $37,172. Is this still true
today? You get a random sample of 150 recent college graduates and
find that their mean student loan is $36,654 with a standard
deviation of $4,000. Test the claim at the 5% significance level
using PHANTOMS.

A December Galllup Poll found that 38% of recent college
graduates "strongly agreed" that college was worth the cost. The
random sample was based on 1025 recent college graduates.
a) Find a 90% confidence interval for the percentage of all
recent college graduates who strongly agree that college was worth
the cost.
b) Interpret the interval in context by completing the sentence:
"I am 90% confident that..."
